I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Terra Lago. But I will try.
The house is EXACTLY as it looks in the photos. Everything is as described. The home is well maintained, everything looks brand new, and is immaculately clean. I almost didn’t want to unpack my bags because the house looked so nice I didn’t want to disturb anything!
The pool and the spa are clean and sparkling. I am slightly technologically impaired, so it took a few tries (and an email to the owner) to figure out how to use the control panel but once I got the hang of it everything was smooth. Beautiful mountain view while relaxing in the spa…gorgeous desert sunsets, and plenty of stars to gaze!
All of the appliances worked with no problem. There is a book in the kitchen which gives instructions for the thermostat and the electronics. It was a treat to have a huge tv to watch, and if you are into gaming there is an xbox 360.
Air conditioning was very comfortable, even in high desert heat outside. It’s nice to have the two car garage to park in, so that it doesn’t get scorching hot in your vehicle.
The beds were super comfortable, I think I slept better there than I do at home!
The owner is a very nice guy. I emailed him a few times during the stay and he was always very prompt with responses. He is very flexible, he let us change our booking by one day, and also allowed us to check out a couple of hours late, which we appreciated SO MUCH. I know that he didn’t have to allow us to make those changes and he probably can’t always be so accomodating….I never EXPECT someone to give us special consideration, but it was really nice that he did.
The housing development is beautiful. Gated, and feels very secure. There are supermarkets and restaurants and shops nearby, and Joshua Tree and Palm Springs are right there for tourist activities.
I am looking forward to going back to stay here again!
